to is the guy sort of out of focus on the left-hand side of the photo that is john dingell, congressman john dingell of dearborn, michigan. congressman dingle is 86 years old. he is in his 30th term in congress. a few months into this term for him in june of this year, he will become the longest serving member of congress in american history. nobody since the dawn of the republic will have served as much time in congress as john dingell as of this june. john dingell is a democrat. he has been his entire career as far as i know. he is also a staunch proponent of gun rights. he is a former board member of the national rifle association. now what is going on in this photo from the vice president's office today is that john dingell is speaking to this whole group of cabinet officials and the vice president himself and his fellow house democrats, and he is speaking to them as one of the 12 vice-chairman of the democrats gun violence prevention task force in the house. this group was set up by nancy pelosi last month to be the voice of congressional democrats on reform. and it tells you something
. majority leader harry reid and speaker john boehner appear to be in a game of legislative chicken. boehner's spokesman released a statement after the president's speech saying, simply, house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that. reid, of course, who has already said the senate will only consider legislation that can pass the house said in a very vague, carefully-worded statement yesterday, quote, i am committed to ensuring that the senate will consider can legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. reid, of course, has home state politics to worry about, as well as keeping a number of red state democrats in line. many of them are up for re-election in 2014. potentially vulnerable. montana senator max baucus responded to the senate in a statement, quote, before passing new laws, we need a debate that respects responsible, law-abiding gun owners in montana instead of a one-size-fits-all directives from washington. joe manchin said, quote, i'm di
. although the u.s. senate acted last month on sandy relief, it has taken john boehner's republican-controlled house 78 days since the storm to pass this bill responding to the storm. in the end, on the republican side, it ended up being a grudging vote for sandy relief. republicans voted against sandy relief by a 3-1 margin. the bill was only able to pass because a minority of republicans joined with democrats to get it done in the house. even though the senate already passed its version of hurricane sandy relief last year, last month, the senate bill has to be redone because it took the house so long to get their side of it done. the senate is expected to get their side done again shortly. and then the president says he will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown,

, which is in my own state, st. john's parish, and the damage inflicted in st. john didn't make headlines as did sandy, but there were thousands of people who lost their businesses, lost their homes, and we're spending all kinds of money. st. john's parish, one small parish in the midst of the devastation, has spent $12 million on debris removal. 12 million. now, that is predictable. we know it's going to happen and the army corps is moving to figure out a way to mitigate. how to prevent doing this again. i'm told they need a million dollars of federal money to finish the study and begin the authorization process. that's part of what we have committed to in the congress. instead, next time there's a big event, there will be 12 million more in debris removal. it's just crazy. so, again, this is not an earmark for south louisiana. it doesn't instruct the corps to spend one dollar. all it does is give the corps the able to say, listen, we got all this money in sandy, frankly, there's no place to spend it we think is worth it, and if that's the case, if we can spend a small portion someplace

democrats to vote in favor of it. it marks the second time now that house speaker john boehner has broken his own rule, the boehner rule, model on the hastert rule. said the speaker would not bring any bill to the floor for a vote that does not have the support of a majority of his conference, a majority of the majority, it's known as. but last night, just about 20% of the republican conference voted for the bill. the vote split the leadership, majority leader eric cantor, majority whip mccarthy voted for the bill. boehner first broke his rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal cliff on taxes. apparently there's an addendum to the boehner rule. the majority of the majority, unless the country is on the verge of a tax crisis, or chris christie has access the to a megaphone. christie made sure this week that republicans knew he would use it. >> and i'll say again, new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana and alabama and mississippi and if they want to make new rules about disasters, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules

a great view of the president and it was really really exciting. we were sitting right near artist john legend and cindy lopper both of who are very active in the community. we were all just cheering practically every line so we were a bit of a rowdy bunch but we were very very excited to be there, and looking out and seeing all of those people it was really really special and wonderful. >> jennifer: yeah, bill, i completely agree with everything, and the thing that struck me bill was that he really spoke clearly about income inequality you don't hear presidents often talking about poverty directly, and i was really encouraged by that. >> yeah what a contrast if mitt romney had given that speech, right? mitt romney would have said it's good to be rich. you know? but again, there was a line there -- i looked at justice scalia, and he looked to be napping, and the president said that we must change with the times, right in applying this constitution, and of course that's counter to everything that justice scalia believes. but then the president spelled it out, and
want to bring in joe johns. he's also working his sources. what are you hearing, joe? >> well, we've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we dou

theories. there's conspiracies all the way back to wroelz and john birch and the militia movement. these are people who are inclined to believe that the government is out to get them anyway, the media is in cahoots with it, and they jump on events like sandy hook as just further confirmation of these things. basically they kind service this confirmation bias as psychologists call it to look for only evidence that supports their theories and disregard anything that says otherwise. in a way it kind of helps explain what happened, explain this tragedy. it kind of gives meaning to why all these children died. >> and alex, you spoke to a man named gene rosen, the man who sheltered six students fleeing from the shooting at sandy hook in his house and i diel spoke to him last night. he came up to me off krarcamera. and he's weeping because he's being harassed by people who believe he made up the entire experience, that he's part of some sort of government hoax. >> yeah, this is really tragic. this is a guy who just happened to be in the right place at the right time to help. he lives jus
. >> in his later years. we have to keep that in account. >> in his later years he was almost killed by john hinckley. >> all through his presidency he opposed gun control. that's my point. senator j. rockefeller on the other side of the aisle owns an ar-15. we talked to many legislators which own those type of firearms. that's the very point. these are guns which are commonly owned. men and women would want to use these types of firearms to protect their homes. they have much less fire power than your average deer rifle. >> i want to challenge also your polling data, because the pugh poll said 57% of americans, a clear majority, oppose having armed guards in schools. >> this was gallup from last month. you can check that out. >> depends how the question is asked. >> yes, it does. pugh has been well known for that. gallup calls it straight. what do you think is the most important problem facing the country, this was an open ended question at the top, economy in general at 21%, goes down to the federal budget deficit, dissatisfaction with government, unemployment, taxes, all the way at the bo

a summary what you have so far. >> yes, thank you, john. i would like to thank the organizers for being here. first visited fukushima in july of 2011 shortly after the disaster. and we spent about six weeks there since that time monitoring the movement of the contaminants and looking at the effect on the biological community. everything we have learned is new. it there's never been an event quite like this. there was twenty six years and we worked on that but the fukushima event and luckily was smaller, at least on the terrestrial side. we're thankful that are if that. the sorts things we've been looking at how are the insects, birds, microbes effected. are there measurable containment. and, you know, the first sets of results for preliminary published. we had a couple of paper published related to biodiversity as well as the major insect groups. the most striking thing to come from it is the level of variation among different groups. birds and butterflies, for instance, showed very strong and rapid responses to the contaminant, which we have seen. but many of the other insect groups, for in
, resting her voice we hope. >> and i'm john berman. it's 6:00 a.m. in the east. a helicopter hit a crane and crashed into the street near the thames river. it happened during rush hour. emergency personnel on the scene right now. two people have been killed and two more have been taken to area hospitals. joining us is dan rivers, live at the scene of the crash. what is the latest right now? >> reporter: we've got two dead, one critically injured, eight more with minor injuries. helicopter hit a construction crane that was building a skyscraper. in a very busy part of the city. to the south of the thames, near the u.s. embassy, where it's going to be built. there is a main railway line going through there. it's incredible more people weren't killed or injured. right in the middle of the rush hour. the helicopter hit the crane and fell to the ground. witnesses this morning said they heard a huge explosion. amateur footage of lots of debris on fire on the road below. frankly, increasdible this wasn worse. the crane was shrouded in morning mist and fog and that may have contributed to the ca

"outfront" tonight, war in mali. a deadly conflict between al qaeda militants and the government is getting violent. they're threatening to take control of the entire country. the militants' move prompted france to take action over the weekend. they put boots on the ground and went all in, bombing rebel training camps and other targets. so what will the united states do? a pentagon official told me this afternoon that the u.s. will participate in mali, but, and i want to make sure i put quotes around this, it's still deciding what that l
is congressman john larson. democrat from connecticut. thanks for coming on the show tonight. >> great to be with you, rev. >> congressman, let me start by asking are you pleased with what we're hearing about the president's plan tomorrow? >> the president has shown incredible strength with regard to this, as you know. his trip to connecticut in which he spoke to us directly about this probably being december 14th in newtown, the worst day of his presidency. and to the very core of his marrow, this has impacted him. and he has resolved to act on behalf of america's children and in the interest of our safety. he would like for congress to respond and i'm sure the vice president has outlined a very constructive, common sense, pragmatic solutions. but if congress cannot act, i'm heartened be i the fact that the president said he will take executive action. there's a number of things i implore him to do under executive actions that are long overdue. but we know the resolve of this president. we hope republicans and the nra come to the table around a comprehensive agenda, but understand tha
is another display of the administration's consolidation of power. joining me now from connecticut is john larson. thank you so much for joining me, sir. let me get your initial reaction to what you heard from the president. is it what you were hoping for? >> absolutely. i was fortunate to fly up from the president from d.c. to newtown when he gave his address. i can you to his marrow he was impacted by this and said it was the worst day of his presidency and he was resolved to do something about it and he has. i think the nation is behind this president and it is different now. i think the road ahead may be difficult, legislators shouldn't be afraid to stand in the way. the teachers weren't afraid to stand in the way of that massacre. that principal was not afraid to stand in the way. we have to get behind the president. nothing he is proposing, he is not taking guns away. everything he is proposing is common sense and practical and comprehensive and including mental health and school safety provisions. the second amendment that everybody abides by and believes in, it calls for a well-reg
majority are. you mention this issue about john boehner having brought up two bills so far this month. the fiscal cliff and the sandy relief bill without a majority of his majority behind it. if he brought up a vote on this issue, would his speakership be at risk? >> yes. it probably would be. and then, of course, there is a debt ceiling vote. now you hear a lot of republicans making noises about backing down from the debt ceiling fight. it is interesting by the way, i know we're not here to talk about that. it is interesting how the conventional wisdom has shifted on that. >> jennifer: quickly too. >> so quickly. just another sign of the shifting sands. it all hinges on how public opinion turns. and you know, is the president going to go out on the stump? is he going to go out and barnstorm the country for his proposals? how much political capital is he going to put into it? if he really builds up public support for the proposals and public support grows and if they feel pressure, he'll bring a vote. >> >> jennifer: just to take you back to that -- not the fiscal cliff, the debt ceil
. it wasn't 11 and right. the australian prime minister, john howard, wrote in the "new york times," fascinating piece about -- >> rose: what he did. >> he was considered pretty far right conservative, but he brought in really draconian gun control, and as he pointed out,ain massacres per the port arthur massacre which was a tipping point in the previous 10 or 12 years, i think it was. and since 1996 not a single one. and in britain a very similar story. >> rose: does britain, does australia have the power of an nra lobby like we do here? >> no, absolutely not. >> rose: is that the critical difference. >> critical difference, but also the gun culture here is completely different. you know, i grew up in a small village in the south of england where nobody had a gun, other than a farmer who would use it for hunting or shooting or people going to a target range. they were just unheard of for people to actually is ray gun at home for self-protection. americans have always believed since gaining independence that you need to have a firearm at home to protect yourself and your family, an
. >> bill: now the only exceptions to using the bible were john quincy adams in 1825 and teddy roosevelt in 19 used the baseball in second inauguration. there is a move to remove the bible from the inauguration. on monday he will place his hands on two bibles. one from abraham lincoln and the other from dr. martin luther king jr. andrew seattle who is with the freedom from religion foundation. mr. stittle, abraham lincoln and dr. king too two amazing american icons you want to take their bibles and remove them from the ceremony. >> i much prefer dr. king's writing on the letter from the birmingham jail where he talks about the white church standing on the sideline mouthing trivialalities and pyes irrelevancy while he does the work of the civil rights movement. >> bill: you must know that dr. king invoked god in almost every speech that he made. >> article 2 section one of the constitution which lays out the oath does not say anything about the word so help me god. it says i will preserve to the best of my ability, preserve, defend and protect the states period. it's kind of ironic that t
% of americans like him. he has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. those are pretty good numbers. and i think also there are glimmers of hope for those of us who believe the president has stayed on his side of pennsylvania avenue too much. he said over the past week or two, his daughters are getting older, they don't like hanging around dad as much anymore. >> he's lonely. >> he's lonely. the president used to tell anybody that would listen, i work and then i go upstairs and i'm with my family. you can't trivialize the fact that he is talking about reaching out more, not only to republicans, we hear the same complaint from democratic senators as well, it's a good sign and let's hope things get done. we have to make this city work again. >> tom's point, the perils of a second term, you have thought about this and talked to the president about it. how does he map out these next four years? >> first of all, i want to say i appreciate the priorities that tom laid out. but there's a larger priority of which this is part, which is how do you create an economy, rebuild an e
